Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Hello.  A Message Board Friend asked for help in making .svg files of Dr. Seuss' One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  She is in turn helping a friend who is decorating her nursery with Dr. Seuss.  She had found several other Dr. Seuss images as .svg files already, but hadn't found the fish.  I told her I would be happy to help.

 I found a coloring book page online and used that to create the images.  There are two layers to most images, the base layer which is black and then the top layer which is the color of the fish.  A couple (the red fish and blue fish) also have white eyes as another layer to cut.  All of them have a few small pieces that aren't part of the "whole".   They could have been taken into Inkscape and edited some of the nodes so that the top was just one piece.  I just didn't have the time to do that.

These files are no longer available sorry.  Thanks for your understanding.
